I can think of another as well... maybe you'll consider this, even if it's still some time away from being widely implemented...

As some of you (e.g. those in the San Francisco Bay Area) may already be aware, the electrical power company here (PG&E, or Pacific Gas & Electric) is now beginning to beta-test a "SmartMeterâ„¢" on 8,500 San Francisco homes and businesses [1].

I think the basic reason why people are so accepting of these sorts of things, are 1) They don't care as long as their cable feed is up... 2) think along the lines of 'Well, I'm not doing anything bad, so really why should I worry'... until one of them ends up with a bill from the recording industry for copyright infringements because they were playing their neighbor's iPod in their house...

On how to deal with such snoopage, perhaps GNURadio could be used monitor and then to inject a small amount of 'noise' in to the line to 'cover'
any residuals picked up by the line in the house.
